Oh, all the things we can do with toes!

Tip-toe into the pages of this exquisitely illustrated book as we dig, squish, and splash our way to discover the many secrets and delights of our toes. A wonderful read-aloud book to be shared by the whole family.

In this delightful poem, children of all ages celebrate digging, splashing, counting, and all the other things that they can do with their toes.

Editorial Reviews:

I am a big believer in the importance of reading to my newborn as soon as possible. But where does one start? Charlesbridge Publishing has an engaging line of books specifically written for wee tykes.

The beautifully illustrated board book Busy Toes will be such fun to act out with my little guy as he gets older. And the two portable, colorful accordion fold-out books Who Has More? Who Has Fewer? and Who Is Bigger? Who Is Smaller? do a clear job at teaching counting and relational sizes for toddlers.
